ST. LOUIS, MO. (KMOX) — You may have gotten an email recently from your bank or a company who has your credit card number saying they’ve become victim to a massive theft of customer e-mail addresses.
The thieves don’t have your credit card number but they do ask for it in a phony e-mail they send pretending to be a legitimate company.
The Better Business Bureau in St. Louis says they’re starting to see the scam.
The advice from the B-B-B; ignore unsolicited emails, and never provide personal information in response to an e-mail.
The millions of stolen email addresses were taken from a company that provides email services to some of the largest corporations in the nation.
The bureau would also like to know if you get one of the counterfeit and phony emails asking you for your credit card number.
